My husband and I met on 31st October 2009 and around 7 months later, we got married – and let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made.  There was only a short period of time between our engagement and wedding – one and half months!! – so I didn’t have a lot of time for wedding planning so I needed to make quick snap decisions.  For example, shopping for a wedding dress only took me 20 minutes because I bought the first wedding dress I tried on.  However, when it came to buying wedding shoes, it took me slightly longer – and that was because my dress was not floor-length which meant that my wedding shoes would be on show so I really had to hunt down the “perfect wedding shoes”.  When I found them, I was ecstatic – they were PERFECT!  It turns out my wedding photographer thought so too because she took a few wedding shoe shots.

Anyway, I have collaborated with Bride.com.au, to give you 3 helpful tips on how to choose the perfect wedding shoes :-

My Shoe Collection

Building up a shoe collection does not happen overnight.  It takes years.  Although, I am not the biggest shoe fan, I know what pretty shoes look like.  If you didn’t know already, I recently migrated to Australia and I have only managed to take over a few pairs of shoes and boots from my collection.  As for the rest of my shoe collection, I had packed it all away before I left Scotland.

I returned to Scotland last week for my Gran’s funeral which will be held tomorrow.  Today, I discovered that my Dad had binned my entire shoe collection!!!

The worst thing is that he did not donate my shoe collection to charity.

Instead, he put my entire shoe collection into a bin bag…and left it outside in the garden!!!  He didn’t leave it out for the rubbish collection.  He didn’t take it to charity.  He just left it to get wet in the rain!!!  WHAT’S THE POINT?????

Why not just leave my shoes in my room???!!!  Why leave the shoes outside in the rain????

I just went to see if I could somehow rescue them.  I opened up the bag…and saw mouldy shoes.  Yes, my entire shoe collection is mouldy!!!

shoe collection, mouldy, shoeaholic,

I am really annoyed.  Extremely annoyed!!!!  ARGH!!!!

I confronted my Dad and this is what he said :-

“They were mouldy already!”
“NO, THEY WEREN’T!  I PACKED THEM ALL AWAY IN AUGUST!”
“Okay…well…just wash the mould off and wear them!”

…and then he left!  ARGH!!!!
